Discussion 2.3: NAFTA Negotiations

View “NAFTA Explained,” a YouTube video hosted by CNNMoney. Then adopt the role of one of the following people and consider NAFTA from this person’s perspective:

  • U.S. Manufacturing Laborer
  • Mexican agricultural laborer
  • middle-class American consumer
  • CEO of a large agribusiness
  • CEO of a large American consumer goods manufacturer
  • small to medium-sized American farmer or rancher

Do you think the U.S. should back out of NAFTA? Argue your position “in the voice” of the person you chose.
